It's clear enough on an ordinary tuner if I blow Ro accurately as D. If I use the downloaded shakuhachi tuner Ro appears as Ro over a fairly wide range before it appears in its flat form or shape shifts to tsu meri. I aim to practice it in its "purest" form but is the wide range on the tuner a reflection of the idea that Ro, or any of the notes on a shakuhachi, is acceptable as a "wide" note?

No. This is an software/hardware issue or maybe a feature? Think about playing in a duet. Then your pitch have to be spot on.

I use a hardware tuner (Chromatic tuner Korg LCA-120) with a continuous pointer. This is very useful. You can "see" your pitch changing while moving your head, your flute or do half holing or what ever. Very versatile when checking your pitch.
